PQC Service is a well-known hosting service provider based in Wilmington, USA. It doesn't do shared hosting, but it does do dedicated and virtual servers.

Overview

PQC Service

PQC Service has been supplying businesses around the world with its affordable hosting services since 2002, and it has served more than 5,000 customers to date. It combines significant industry experience with excellent technical support for its VPS and dedicated server offerings.

PQC’s website supports the English and Russian languages, but its shopping cart can be switched into twenty-four additional languages.

Features and Ease of Use

PQC Service offers lots of VPS plans (in three categories) plus eight dedicated hosting plans. With the XEN SSD and KVM SSD virtual plans, you get:

  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • 10 GB to 320 GB storage
  • 1,000 GB to 8,000 GB bandwidth
  • 1 GB to 32 GB RAM
  • Server monitoring
  • Automatic backups

SSD storage dramatically increases both performance and reliability. The DDoS protection helps you detect and mitigate distributed denial of service attacks without having any impact on service availability. This is available on all plans apart from the lowest dedicated server plan.

From an infrastructure perspective, PQC has ten high-end data centers scattered across the globe that allow it to cater to a large international clientele. Its infrastructure is PCI DSS compliant and ISO 27001 certified so that you can be sure of your customers’ security at every point of the e-commerce journey.

Pricing and Support

PQC Service’s VPS plans are cheap, and they’re even cheaper when you make an annual commitment instead of paying monthly. The seven-day money-back guarantee might make you feel better about making the longer commitment, although it’s not much time to fully assess the services. You can pay in U.S. dollars by many different payment methods, including credit cards, PayPal, WebMoney, 2Checkout, Paxum, Interkassa, and Bitcoin.

The 24/7 customer service team is available via online chat, ticket, Skype, email, online contact form, and Jabber. Consistent with the stated policy of addressing all technical questions within 30 minutes, I received a rapid response via live chat:
